By applying Lean tools and techniques, processes become more efficient and the work on the company level is better organized. Companies become interesting to bigger foreign companies and suppliers for providing a faster and more quality product or service.
After applying Lean, the company can think about expanding or investing because of realized savings and productivity increase. Companies that have implemented Lean can begin working on digital transformation since efficient processes are one of the most important preconditions for transformation.
Top-ranked companies in the world like Coca-Cola, Nestle, Boeing, GE, Airbus, Mayo Clinic and Bank of America apply Lean.
Some of Croatian companies that have recognized Lean’s strength and advantages are: Raiffeisen Bank, Croatian Telecom, Pliva, Podravka, Končar energetski transformatori, Međimurje, Končar, Assa Abloy Metalind, KBC Zagreb, Oprema and many others.
Industry 4.0 is a strategic way to connect systems based on internet technology with the goal of establishing communication between machines, people, products and business systems. The term “Industry 4.0” was first presented in 2011 at the world exhibition of industrial technology “Hanover Messe”, as part of the German industrial strategy for the period until 2020.
The main goals are to create smart factories and digitalize business and production processes in order to increase overall quality, reduce production and business costs, and increase production flexibility and efficiency. Because of its universal principles, Industry 4.0 can also be successfully applied outside production – in the health, administration and education system. This would reduce the cost of providing services, shorten the service life cycle, and increase the efficiency of the energy systems.
